    I am a global environmentalist.

    That said, myopic and closed minded decisions to shut down projects like Pebble Mine actually hurts our global environment!

    Look at the big picture to see the whole truth!

    Human civilization demands an increasing supply of diminishing resources every year. If the regulated environmentally friendly Western nations can not supply these resources… China and other heavily polluting nations will.

    Given the 50% decimation of relatively clean Western industry at the hands of massively polluting Eastern industry…this transfer of mining to the Eastern nations must stop now!

    In addition, there will actually be more fresh water tributaries restored as a result of this project than those taken away by the mine. The EPA exaggerated impacts and ignored benefits.
